When she comes I will meet — but there they are!Maggie attempts to make a dash for the house, in her shuffling way, but I stay her with my hand. "Come back here," I say. And she stops and tries to dig a well in the sand with her toe.It is hard to see them clearly through the strong sun. But even the first glimpse of leg out of the car tells me it is Dee. Her feet were always neat-looking, as if God himself had shaped them with a certain style. From the other side of the car comes a short, stocky man. Hair is all over his head a foot long and hanging from his chin like a kinky mule tail. I hear Maggie suck in her breath. "Uhnnnh," is what it sounds like. Like when you see the wriggling end of a snake just in front of your foot on the road. "Uhnnnh."Dee next. A dress down to the ground, in this hot weather. A dress so loud it hurts my eyes. There are yellows and oranges enough to throw back the light of the sun. I feel my whole face warming from the heat waves it throws out. Earrings gold, too, and hanging down to her shoulders. Bracelets dangling and making noises when she moves her arm up to shake the folds of the dress out of her armpits. The dress is loose and flows, and as she walks closer, I like it. I hear Maggie go "Uhnnnh" again. It is her sister's hair. It stands straight up like the wool on a sheep. It is black as night and around the edges are two long pigtails that rope about like small lizards disappearing behind her ears."Wa-su-zo-Tean-o!" she says, coming on in that gliding way the dress makes her move. The short stocky fellow with the hair to his navel is all grinning and he follows up with "Asalamalakim, my mother and sister!" He moves to hug Maggie but she falls back, right up against the back of my chair. I feel her trembling there and when I look up I see the perspiration falling off her chin. Which line from the passage best symbolizes Dee's character? A. Like when you see the wriggling end of a snake just in front of your foot on the road. B. And she stops and tries to dig a well in the sand with her toe. C. The dress is loose and flows, and as she walks closer, I like it. D. Hair is all over his head a foot long and hanging from his chin like a kinky mule tail.

C. because it's the only one that makes sense and the only one that talks about dee.

Which statement explains the ending of the sonnet? The last line shows that the poem is lighthearted. The last line reveals the meaning of all the symbols throughout. The last line is even more violent than the beginning. The last line repeats an earlier idea presenting full closure. On DONNE’S “HOLY SONNET XIV: BATTER MY HEART”

I would say that the statement that explains the ending of the sonnet is the last line is even more violent than the beginning.
In the beginning, the poet is using either neutral or not so strong words as in the end of the sonnet - there he shows the full emotion he is feeling, by using words such as enthrall, never be free, ravish, etc. I believe that conveys a much stronger message than the beginning.

Read the excerpt from "Hokusai's The Great Wave.” But there are other ways of reading Hokusai’s Great Wave. Look a little closer and you see that the beautiful wave is about to engulf three boats with frightened fishermen, and Mount Fuji is so small that you, the spectator, share the feeling that the sailors in the boats must have as they look to shore – it’s unreachable, and you are lost.

In at least 150 words, explain the symbolism of the quilt in “Everyday Use.”

Answer:In Alice Walker's short story, "Everyday Use", the quilts symbolize the African-American culture that Mama embraces and Wangeroo (Dee) attempts to reject of trivialize. Wangeroo is appalled that Mama would give Maggie the quilts, because Maggie would put them to "everyday use" instead of treating them as artifacts from a bygone age. The quilts help illustrate the schism between Mama and Wangeroo, and their opposed ideas about heritage -- or Mama, the quilts symbolize family unity and shared history; for Wangeroo, the quilts symbolize a past of slavery and  oppression, objects to be put on display. When Mama gives the quilts to Maggie, it is a rejection of Wangeroo's attitude toward their shared heritage, but it is also a symbolic act -- the quilts, as symbols of family unity and history, are Maggie's birthright
